# The Be Good Tanyas: Waiting Around To Die
# (Original by Townes Van Zandt)
###########################################


INTRO:
Gm 
Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm (3x)
Gm

VERSE:
Gm                                      Csus2/G
Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me
Gm                   D              
   Sometimes I don't know the reason why
     Gm                              Csus2/G
So I guess I keep a-gamblin' lots of booze and lots of ramblin'
         Gm               D                Gm
But it's easier than just a-waitin' around   to die

Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm

VERSE:
Gm                                Csus2/G
Oh one time, friends, I had a ma    I even had a pa
   Gm                               D
He beat her with a belt once 'cause she cried
         Gm                         Csus2/G 
She told him to take care of me she headed down to Tennessee
         Gm               D                Gm
But it's easier than just a-waitin' around   to die

Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm
Gm

VERSE:
Gm                                         Csus2/G
Then I came of age and I found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
    Gm                               D
She cleaned me out and she hit in on the sly
       Gm                        Csus2/G
Well I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
          Gm               D                Gm
Well it's easier than just a-waitin' around   to die

Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm
Gm

VERSE:
Gm                              Csus2/G
And a friend said he knew where some easy money was
   Gm                               D
We robbed a man, and brother did we fly
        Gm                                    Csus2/G
But the posse caught up with me and they drug me back to Muskogee
             Gm             D                Gm
And now it's two long years a-waitin' around   to die

Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm (3x)
Gm

VERSE:
Gm                          Csus2/G
Now I'm out of prison and I got me a friend at last
    Gm                               D
And he don't steal or cheat or drink or lie
         Gm                      Csus2/G
Well his name is Codine he's the nicest thing I've seen
       Gm                 D           Gm
And to-gether we're gonna wait around   to die

OUTRO: (Harmonica solo)
Csus2/G  A#sus2/F  Gm  Gm (8x)
